daryl hannah, and nasa climate scientist james hansen and former chair of the naacp julian bond. the protest was a landmark for the sierra club environmental group after its board endorsed an act of civil disobedience for the first time in its 120-year history. director michael brune was among those arrested. >> so we know we cannot win on climate change if we continue to talk about it but not do anything. so the sierra club is engaging in civil disobedience for the first time because with a moral catastrophe on our hands and need to do what we can to compel stronger, bolder action. >> we will be joined by michael brune and actress daryl hannah after the headlines. president obama as pick for treasury secretary faced questions over his wall street past at a senate confirmation hearing wednesday. jack lew defended the bonus of nearly $1 million he received while working at citigroup just a few months after the bank added taxpayer bailout worth billions. he was also a question of his investment of tens of thousands of dollars in a citigroup fund listed at a building in the cayman
family. >> reporter: wjz had learned devon green had learned one of nasa's top interns. he was interested in robotic sciences. green recently graduated from morgan state university in 2012. he was now pursuing his master's at college park. green's family declined comment to wjz but told police critical information. >> detectives learned that the shooter had been suffering from a mental illness. the family let our detectives know that this suspect had this condition for at least a year and that in the past, he had been prescribed medication for this mental illness. >> reporter: like police, many neighbors here want to know where green got the guns. >> i saw you here every morning, when you turn on the news. somebody is getting shot up. . >> oh, yes. >> reporter: and now it's your neighbor involved in it. >> yeah. it's really a shock to me. it really is. >> reporter: and we can get -- did get some new information on the source of that gun from state police. they say greene was the registered owner of the 9- millimeter handgun that was fo
to nasa's jet propulsion laboratory, where they're keeping a close eye on what's going on. >> wolf, we're inside the deep space network operation center at the jet propulsion laboratory at nasa's facility in pasadena, california. it's at the jet propulsion lab, where nasa will be monitoring that asteroid. it's called 2012 da-14, because it was discovered last year. that's an artist rendering of it, but they're going to be looking at the real thing when it passes very close to earth on friday, mid-day. it's going to pass within about 17,200 miles of earth. that's a lot closer than the moon is to the earth. it's also within the satellite ring. about 5,000 miles within the ring of satellites that hover above the earth's surface. what can we really expect from that asteroid has it passes close to earth? i'm here with paul, a research astronomer with nasa's near-earth object program. paul, let's get this out of the way. does this threaten earth? is it going to impact earth? >> no, we've been tracking this closely for a year and we know it will not hit the earth. >> what about the satellites
scientists can see cosmic rocks coming our way, doing something about it is the tricky part. in theory, nasa would be able to knock a threatening incoming asteroid off orbit so it misses earth. but there's very little precedent for that. the only thing that comes close was a 2005 mission where nasa steered a probe about the size of a coffee table into an oncoming docket, a project known as -- comet, a prooj knoject kn "deep comet." >> with the they're tess should work fine, certainly there would be details in launching a massive object into space, making sure we guide it correctly so it will hit the right spot on the asteroid to knock it appropriately off-course. >> reporter: scientists say these events, the meteor in russia and the asteroid's close call, should be a wake-up call. if the asteroid instead of missing earth had impacted, say, washington, d.c., it would have been devastating. >> if it's dense enough and could hit the earth intact, the impact crater itself would not be that big. but the effects from the shockwave and the heat from impact would be enough to basically wipe out ever
in the tracking? >> the good thing is that nasa and other agencies have been diligent about tracking this asteroid for some time now, so they have very good data on what the orbital pass of this is, and they can tell within a very few hundred feet or so, maybe a few hundred miles, how close this is to earth, and they know for sure that it won't come any closer than 17,150. that's pretty good. it's great they do that because they can look at other potentials like this too. >> we can be that accurate about its size and its pass of the earth, but let's get to this $200 billion number about what its cost would be worth. how do we get to that number? how do we put a price tag on this asteroid? >> well, you know, we could look at the composition ofas resides and figure out what their value is according to their mineral worth. if we could actually mine them and, of course, that's another story altogether, but when we think about the kind of minerals that we find there, some of them very rare ones that we need here on earth or that we use quite extentively here on earth, and we have somewhat limited suppl
close to earth? i'm here with paul, a research astronomer with nasa's near-earth object program. paul, let's get this out of the way. does this threaten earth? is it going to impact earth? >> no, we've been tracking this closely for a year and we know it will not hit the earth. >> what about the satellites? could it threaten the satellites out there? >> it is coming within the ring of tv satellites, but it's fairly far away from the majority, the beehive of satellites close to the earth, so we think that hitting a satellite is a very rare oprtunity. we don't think this will happen. >> all right, paul. good luck monitoring it and we'll be watching it closely. what paul and the others here tell us is you're not going to be able to see this with the naked eye. you'll need a telescope, at least in the northern hemisphere to see this and you'll have to wait until after sunset on friday because the asteroid will be moving away from earth at a very rapid rate of speet. they'll be using that tracking antenna to get a visual of the asteroid and measure its depth and its length. they only know
:25. beginning at 11:00 a.m. nasa will broadcast live images of the asteroid online as it sweeps by. >> it doesn't look that big when you look at it like that. >> let's turn things over to jeff live from at&t park. instead of love being in the air, love is in the field. >> yes, it is. i know a lot of you at home are just tuning in right now. we're actually in centerfield at at&t park. they have lent the field to an incredible organization. back behind me they're still preparing for hearst after dark which starts at 7:30. i was out on the dance floor earlier. i think everybody ran the other way. a huge organization coming out for tonight's hearst after dark to raise a lot of money for the greater good here in the community. stephanie bray with san francisco general hospital foundation joins us. stephanie, this is something that you guys at the hospital are working towards all year long. >> yes, absolutely. the work that goes on at the hospital we try to share as much as we can. and get as many people involved. and there are a lot of people involved in putting this event together. >> so this event
to nasa, this was the biggest meteor to hit earth in over a century. weighing more than the eiffel tower. today, the search is on to find fragments that hit the ground. divers explore this frozen lake where one of the bigger chunks is thought to left a big hole in the ice. but in the end, they came up empty-handed. the site is something of a tourist spot for locals, wanting to see it for themselves. i want to show you something. this is the reason that so many people got injured, the broken glass. many people went to the windows to check on the big flash in the sky. and when they got there, the blast blew the windows out and sent the glass flying. dan and bianna? >> extraordinary. kirit, thank you. and collectors are looking to buy remnants of that meteorite. we'll keep on this story, as well. >>> moving on, now. a powerful, new entry in the debate over gun control in this country. the mother of hadiya pendleton, the 15-year-old honor student who was shot on the streets of chicago just days after performing at the president's inauguration, made this television ad. take a listen. >> a pie
